Food-based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs) are new. Although the idea is based on the familiar idea of dietary guidelines, FBDGs depart from them in important ways. Current Dietary Guidelines (DGs) are essentially nutrient based (fat, alcohol, salt sugar, calcium, iron), but expressed as food groups. As a result, this may create confusion about the term "Food-Based" since most existing guidelines around the world also mention foods e.g eat more vegetables, cereals etc.

Abstract


Food-based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs) are new. Although the idea is based on the familiar idea of dietary guidelines, FBDGs depart from them in important ways. Current Dietary Guidelines (DGs) are essentially nutrient based (fat, alcohol, salt sugar, calcium, iron), but expressed as food groups. As a result, this may create confusion about the term "Food-Based" since most existing guidelines around the world also mention foods e.g eat more vegetables, cereals etc.
